04 IDLES AROUND 1000 WHEN COLD AND WHEN WARMED UP IT IDLES REAL LOW AND WANTS TO DIE. ANY ANSWERS?

2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor • 130,000 miles

IT SEEMS TO RUN FINE WHEN DRIVING IT, BUT WHEN I COME TO STOP AT A STOPLIGHT, IT IDLES REAL LOW AND SOMETIMES DIES.

It is most likely the Idle Air Control Valve, IACV, which is located on the intake manifold near the throttle body. I am giving you a diagnsotic walk through for your situation. Just follow the link below;
